In our first Ask Holly we have a question from a Pilates Teacher about homework for clients. Please share your go-to homework strategies that help keep clients’ motivation and commitment to their own practice and well-being.
Here are a few of our strategies:
– Include imagery/awareness based practice for functional movements like walking, sitting, standing for long periods – one image Holly likes to use is stacked boxes when standing.
– Include “bed homework” that can be done upon waking and before going to sleep – some options are hip sways, pelvic tucks/rocks/clocks, sidelying chest opener.
– Give a maximum of 3 easy-to-do movements that the client has already mastered, and that they know will make them feel great.
What homework do you like to give clients?
